This week in class, we’re reading "A Horseman in the Sky" by Ambrose Bierce.
Ambrose Gwinnett Bierce (1842 – c. 1914) was an American journalist, satirist, and short story writer. In this short story set during the American Civil War, a young Virginian man joins the Union Army and falls asleep on one of his watches. When he awakes, he faces a difficult duty.
"What drives a person to betray?" and "How are we changed by war?"
